Full Itinerary

Day 1: Moshi- Tarangire NP + -

Pick up from your Moshi hotel at 8.30am and travel to Tarangire National Park (with a lunchbox on the way). You will arrive late in the morning and go on a game drive where you will have the opportunity to witness enormous groups of elephants that make this national park renowned. Tarangire is home to several of the famed Baobab trees as well as Amarula trees (whose fruit is one of the elephants' favorite sweet snacks!). Following your game drive, you will return to your lodging within the National Park.

Day 2: Tarangire NP – Serengeti NP + -

Early morning game drive inside the park, then return to your accommodation for breakfast before heading to the Serengeti National Park for an afternoon game drive (lunchbox supplied). You will go through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, where you will get the opportunity to see animals. The Serengeti literally translates to "endless plains," and it is packed with animals (and ideal for seeing big cats!). Following your game drive, you will return to your tented accommodation within the National Park for supper before retiring for the night.

Day 3:  Serengeti – Ngorongoro Conservation Area + -

Rise early to catch the wildlife while they are still active before the day becomes too hot and they go to rest. Explore the hippo pools and look for crocodiles sunning as the sun rises. Return to your lodge for brunch, pack your belongings, and then travel to Ngorongoro while witnessing more animals along the route. Expect to see zebra and perhaps elephant roaming the area. You'll undoubtedly be tired by the end of the day!

Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater-Moshi + -

After a great breakfast at your tented camp, descend into the notorious Ngorongoro crater to encounter some of Tanzania's lesser-known animals, such as the black rhino. You will proceed on a morning wildlife drive across the crater's broad grassy plains, pausing for a picnic lunch at the Ngoitoktok hippo pools before returning to Arusha/Moshi (arrive 5pm/6pm).

General Safari Information

Your safari guide:

Our safari guides are all well experienced in the field and passionate about showing you the amazing wildlife and culture Tanzania has to offer. All are fluent in English, and if you have a special language request just let us know as many will also have an additional language (e.g. French, Spanish, German). They are also well trained in 4×4 driving so will be able to get you anywhere on the varying road qualities we have here! Please feel free to ask your guide any questions you may have about the wildlife, culture or trip along the way.

Your meals and drinks:

All meals will be provided by the tented lodges you are staying at, if you are leaving on a game drive during the day then a lunch box will be provided. Alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at most tented lodges. We will provide mineral water in the car each day.


4×4 Safari Landcruiser with 7 seats. Our safari vehicles have been specifically modified for wildlife viewing, with a pop top roof which will be open during all game drives and sliding windows. We carry at least one pair of binoculars in each vehicle. Please note our regular vehicles do not have air conditioning or refrigerator. If you would like us to arrange one of our upgraded vehicles with these facilities please just ask us to provide a quote.
Although we do everything within our powers to ensure your maximum comfort, the roads in Tanzania can vary greatly in quality from newly tarmacced to completely rough and muddy or dusty (depending on rainy or dry season!). Driving times can be long, even to cover what may seem like relatively short distances. Although we regularly maintain our vehicles (with a check-up in the garage after every safari) they can and do sometimes pop a tyre or breakdown. Our guides are well trained with lots of experience in car mechanics and 98% of the time can fix the issue themselves- and you’ll be off spotting zebras again in less than 20 minutes! Please be patient if your car encounters a mechanical issue.


A great area of confusion and unease for many tourists, tipping is a generally expected and highly appreciated (although not compulsory) part of your safari tour. It is a great way of saying ‘thank you’ to those that have helped you to have a wonderful experience here. Tips should be given at the end of your safari when saying your goodbyes. If you are part of a group safari it is best to try to discuss with everyone beforehand how you wish to do the tipping. To help you feel at ease we have provided a general guide below but please remember that tipping is a way of you showing your gratitude for your safari staff and is up to you! The guidelines given below are for a group amount, not individually.
Guide: 20-25 USD/ day
